Streets & Public Improvements Commissioner John Lamb said the village is trying something different this year by posting the announcement at various locations including the Village Hall, police station, library and other places.

Lamb said this is being done to make the process easier for not only residents but village workers, as well. The dividing line for leaf collection is Union Street.

Lamb stated collection for Union Street and North will be Monday, October 28; Tuesday, November 12; and Monday, November 25. Union Street and South will be collected Monday, November 4; Monday, November 18; and Monday, December 2.

The collection is for leaves only, and no sticks, garbage or newspapers are allowed. Lamb added leaves to be collected must be placed by the curb, not in the street.

Mayor Jeff Olson asked residents for patience with the schedule as it depends on the weather as winter approaches.
